In a way this simple, yet delicious dish can be seen to represent the colours of the Italian flag – green, red and white.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g floury potatoes, cooked and mashed
110g plain flour
200g spinach, cooked, squeezed dry and very finely chopped
1 egg
salt and pepper
40g parmesan, freshly grated
150g buffalo mozzarella, cut into small cubes

Tomato sauce

Quantity Ingredient
1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
6 tablespoons olive oil
500g canned chopped tomatoes
6 basil leaves

Method

  1. Make the gnocchi by mixing together the potatoes, flour, spinach and egg, adding more flour if the dough is too wet. Season lightly.
  2. Make the simple tomato sauce by frying the garlic in the olive oil until soft, a few minutes. Add the tomatoes, basil, and some salt and pepper, and cook for 20 minutes.
  3. Cook the gnocchi. When ready, drain, then add the sauce, Parmesan and some pepper, and mix well.
  4. Divide the gnocchi between the plates, sprinkling over the mozzarella cubes and some more basil leaves to finish.
